Based in Beijing since 2008, Vicky Mohiedeen is a filmmaker, drama teacher, and producer (as well as mobile-phone photographer to more than 10,000 people on Instagram). In 2009 she founded Electric Shadows, a nonprofit film collective, which has played a key role in helping shape the evolution of public cinema in Beijing.
From 2013 – 2016, Mohieddeen worked as Creative Projects Manager for Koryo Tours, the world’s leading North Korean travel specialist, producing video content and organising cultural engagement events between international artists and their North Korean counterparts.
Her work with Koryo Tours has taken her to North Korea more than 20 times and ranges from co-ordinating overseas submissions to the Pyongyang International Film Festival, to producing ground-breaking work within the country itself, such as the viral time-lapse video ‘Enter Pyongyang’. Her most recent project, working with 3D photographer Matjaz Tancic, is the most wide-ranging portraiture series ever undertaken in North Korea, and recently became the first art-photography exhibition ever to be shown in Pyongyang.
